the likability factor and it's not just to see more a more down-to-earth than mitt romney? is the whole obama package, the family, the president and people connect with them even anti-obama voters. look, i think that the hardest thing to do is to advise a campaign that has been running for four years and i don't work for them and they know way more about what they are facing than i do. my advice would be to, my advice to them would be very simple. look, i think he needs to close the deal. i think he needs to say it's not about mitt romney any more. i think what last night showed is the next four and a half weeks, it's about barack obama and i don't think they ever ran as if they had this in the bag. i know the analysts say obama, he was 20 points ahead and he put in the fourth string and now it is a tight game. which is why they started defining mitt romney before he was the republican nominee but as we head into november, their number one imperative is to answer the question, what will the next four years be like? i think when they answer that question for the american people, which we did i

to governor romney. john said, and i wrote this one down so i don't misquote, it's a big mistake to grant any validity to the international law, even when it may seem in the short term interest to do so because over the long term the goal of those who think that the international law means anything are those that want to constrain the u.s.. >> this is the former ambassador to the u.s.. >> another adviser to governor romney. i say this not to make a partisan statement here, but to say that it's different. it is different. we spent years in the bush years talking about an imperial role for the united states. empire means you have a power of the role that makes rules for everybody else. that is not what this world is it will never work and so with the united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture th sense that it's an example worth emulating that there is -- although they are not as strong as we would like them to be there is health and strength in the multinational system. >> you talking about about continuity. you talked a lot about it this evening. if you set aside the past

lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt romney made over $100 million by shutting down power plant and devastated our lives. turns out that when we built that stage, it was like hoping my own coffin, and it just made me sick. >> priorities u.s.a. action is responsible for the content. >> out of the blue when they were told to build -- >> so pretty powerful add, powerful because it's a real story. powerful because it sets the table is a set in terms of what mitt romney's priorities were peered out from a visual perspective, this ad was seen shooting the visitors 2 million times on youtube and most impressively, it was seen in the swing states. so this is the kind of advertising we decided to run in swing states, particularly in a place like ohio, for example, where blue-collar downscale boaters were looking for this kind of information and saw the priorities of mitt romney and i think this is very important as setting the stage for the rest of the campaign. i will show you one more added and i promise to shut out. it is not on not d., negative. some of it was gone. here is one we di

group activity. and we have broken it down by party picks are you see on the gop side almost 52% of all airings are coming from pro-romney sponsor coming from outside interest groups. next slide. if we just look at title i c. fours, and it will be much more today about disclosure, if we just look at 501(c)(4)'s, over half of the interest group ads are coming from those groups. that give you a sense of the magnitude and you were looking just at the general election period actually slightly after that, after the last time frame, april 26 through september 8. this is a list of the top spenders on the republican side. we'll have more to say next week about ad specifically where there's been, what you're spending on and what they are saying. next slide. the other thing that we're seeing this cycle, every year as it would always likes to say that this is the most negative election ever. we are using more cautious about that, in fact some of the early releases that we did in 20 is a hold on, it is exactly the same at the end of 2010 we saw an increase and 2010 was more negative than any other

versa, a democratic president reducing. and i think be an interesting question for romney to does he think he is to sit down with harry reid or does he think he has to go sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight other, and i think the same for president obama. i think, i think republicans are underestimate how strong obama will be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner if he is a 15 vote margin and as i don't think he can hold all the republicans against an obama version, for example, but they're still in of moderate republicans. the leadership is stronger than it used to be. i think they have more leverage over mbs, partly because of campaign finance issues and other things. but having said that, i think obama going to some lamar alexander's of the world, there are some the covens in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go around leadership is leadership -- that was the case of boehner i suspect. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with obama in 2013 is romney lost. people said bipartisanship t

positively about his programs, but he's also talking more negatively about romney in terms of the economy. and when he's talking about character, as you see the third one down, he's actually gone very negative on romney as opposed to sort of speaking up his, you know, talking up his own character. so i'm going to show you the equivalent of that in romney voice share. so as you can see, romney is really sort of spending more time talking about his character. well, he's splitting his time between, you know, promoting his character and sort of making negative statements about obama's character. um, the one interesting thing about the chart that i, when i look at this is that, you know, not only is the economy, is he talking less about the economy than sort of what people believe he's doing or the, you know, common perception, but he's also really focusing more negatively on obama when he's speaking about the economy than he is sort of being positive about or putting forth a plan of his own. you know, i think he, you know, personally i believe he sort of made a mistake in that. i think he's,

things we cannot do as individuals by ourselves, and i just want to say that the headlines down there in denver colorado where mitt romney winds i felt that was very disingenuous of the press buy not find enough the fact is going back to where the denver post was in reporting in the morning that mitt romney lied. i mean, because that was an awful disgrace what was going on during the debate, with him lying like that over and over again, flipping and flopping it i just want people to know that the press was not there to do their job, they were there to persuade the opinion and was disgraceful for the denver post pressed to do that. >> host: back to facebook. choose a post from the community builders, stan brigety no. they write the government is the way that we do to get there that which we cannot do alone. that is their point of view. the different role is to provide a basic safety net to its citizens while seeking long-term incentives to build a competitive and prosperous nation. about the role of government its find the c-span's site. next is a call from dennis wa
